Peel and thinly slice your apples and set aside in a medium sized mixing bowl.

In a large bowl whisk together the rolled oats, brown sugar, flour, and cinnamon. Next, add the melted butter into the dry ingredients and mix till everything is combined. It will have crumbly texture.

Can I Eat Them Warm?

It is important to let the bars fully cool in the pan to room temperature before removing them and slicing. The bars need time to stiffen up. If you try and slice them before they cool they’ll fall apart.

WHAT TYPE OF APPLES SHOULD I USE?

You can you any type of apple you like! I have made it with baking apples and non baking apples it it works great with both varieties. The latest version (the one I made for the process photos) I used MacIntosh apples.

HOW TO STORE THE BARS

These bars are best served on the day they’re made. Bars should be stored in an airtight container at room temperature. If stored properly the bars keep well for three days. They still taste amazing days after baking, but the topping will start to soften.

Frequently Asked Questions

How to Store the Bars

These bars should be stored in an airtight container at room temperature. They keep well for three days after baking.

WHAT DOES SPOONED AND LEVELLED FLOUR MEAN?

Spooned and levelled flour refers to the way of measuring flour. To properly measure flour you should scoop spoonfuls of flour into your measuring cup and then level off the access by scraping with a knife. Scooping the measuring cup directly into your flour causes the flour to compress and you will get more flour than the recipe calls for.

What Kind of Oats Should I use?

You want to use rolled oats, sometimes called old fashioned oats. Using quick oats will not give the bars the correct texture .

Can I use Frozen Strawberries?

You want to use fresh strawberries for this recipe. If you only have frozen berries you will want to bring them to room temperature before using them.
